So How Old is Superboy Now? Justice League #24 Adds a New Glitch…

Doomsday Clock, the unauthorised sequel to Watchmen set in the near future of the DC Universe, has tried to be careful to show – or not to show – certain aspects. For a while, the previews showed Superman – but not enough to determine whether or not he was wearing red trunks. Or Batman for that matter. That was a reveal saved for Action Comics #1000.

Well, we also haven't seen Clark and Lois's son, Jonathan Kent, Superboy. Which may have been because Brian Bendis was to age him up in Action Comics. And may still de-age him. Either way, his appearance in Doomsday Clock would have given that away. The Adventures Of The Super Sons, with Jonathan Kent and Damian Wayne working together is set before the Bendis Superman run and over on Reddit, writer Peter Tomasi stated that #12 will be it for some time, saying 'I've just turned in the final script to Adventures of Super Sons #12. So it will be quite a while before I get back to the boys.'

But what's this Scott Snyder has tweeted?

Art by Jorge Jimenez for Justice League #24? Looks like it… with a much younger Jonathan Kent/Superboy. Does this mean all of the Snyder Justice League stories are also set before the Bendis Superman run? Or is something else coming up??
